Summary
This is the definitive history of the units raised to answer Winston Churchill's call to arms: 'Enterprises must be prepared with specially trained troops of the hunter class, who can develop a reign of terror'. These units and their courageous operations would take many forms, including the spectacular assaults of the Small Scale Raiding Force, No. 30 Commando's shadowy intelligence-gathering, and the highly secret missions of 'X' Troop. Acclaimed military historian Charles Messenger follows these elite forces from the snowy wastes of Norway to the jungles of South-East Asia, from North Africa and Operation Torch to the Normandy beaches and Operation Overlord
